Don't want to get into the "which is best" controversy etc. Everybody has their own oppinion(s).. all probably valid for some reason of personal experience. The issue to remember is that the "spyware/virus etc. wars" is an everchanging, dynamic due to the very nature of the "bugs" out there. All the detection & removal proggies out there will probably have everchanging "rankings" in the battle for who can fix it first. True, even some of the bigger co's have made some major blunders in the past re: messing up peoples computers with their "updates'upgrades" but hey, that's just the "nature" of the territory. My advice is to always keep a "clean" backup copy of your system & only do manual (not automatic) upgrades & then test the "update/upgrade" yourself.
Personally, I prefer specific tools rather than "suites" because I think it gives me more control & often some insight into what's going on inside the computer.
I you'd like to see a big selection of proggies...

Do a Google search for it, and you'll find many download sites, including the official Spybot S&D site. I've used it for a long time now, and have had no serious problems, and my computer's been spyware free.
Off topic, but if you're having problems with popups, I recommend either the Google toolbar (free) or the Norton version of a Popup/Adware blocker.
